Ode to eternity
Eight years journey ended,

like the cloud has gone,

like the anser flew away.

A forever farewell,

but not a moment goodbye.

To the unfathomable eternity,

where we would meet again.
This Is How I See The World

Sundogs – like bookends for a frozen day.
Yesterday was officially freezing. Real freezing cold. Not that fake cold when your dressing gown is in the dryer and you have to run to the toilet in your nightie and the toilet seat is cold and you shiver and say God that is cold. 679 MORE WORDS

Elise’s Potato Project
This little nifty science experience (narrated by adorable Elise) can really give you pause in thinking about the organic vs. conventional debate, even if I don’t quite agree with her final conclusion (there are many reasons why cancer rates have gone up, including the fact that people just don’t die of other causes first since science got better at preventing those; also, giving rodents extreme amounts of potential carcinogens doesn’t really convince me of their lethality, though I haven’t looked into this specific one in detail). 32 MORE WORDS

The Nobel Prize In Chemistry 2013 Goes To Researchers That Have Developed Animal Free Research

forskningThey have used computer models instead of lab animal research , which can be used in drug testing in pharmaceutical companies for example.

2013-12-10 Nobelpriset i Kemi går till forskare som utvecklat datorsimuleringar av kemiska reaktioner, vilket bidrar till färre djurförsök bl.a. inom läkemedelsindustrin. Medicinpriset går till forskare som studerat  viktiga transportsystem i celler.

Årets Nobelpris visar på styrkan hos djurfri forskning, både cellmodeller och datormodeller.

Kemipristagarnas datormodeller har ersatt enorma mängder djur i läkemedelsutveckling

Kemipristagarna, Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt och Arieh Warshel får dela på priset för upptäckter som ligger till grund för datorsimuleringar av kemiska reaktioner.

Datorsimuleringar används bland annat inom läkemedelsutveckling för att simulera hur ett läkemedel kopplar till sitt målprotein i kroppen.

– Dessa modeller har  revolutionerat metoderna för att hitta substanser som kan fungera som läkemedel, säger Karin Gabrielson Morton, sakkunnig på Forska Utan Djurförsök.

– En mycket stor andel av djurtesterna som tidigare användes i de tidiga…
